GamesRadar's Top 7 compendium

Which games feature the hottest girl-on-girl kisses? What are the bloodiest games you never played? How do you know if you're a gaming snob? If a ninja kills someone in a forest and there's no one there to hear him, does he make a sound?

    Is this being updated?
  • ImAliveOMG - March 7, 2010 7:56 p.m.

    I don't want to point fingers but I've noticed how many Xbox fanboys there are on this site and so I was thinking about a Top 7 games Xbox fanboys shouldn't be braging about. The only reason it's Xbox and not PS3 is because 1. There arn't many Sony fanboys out there as there are Xbox 2. Us PS3 owners don't have all too many games to gloat about other than Uncharted 2 and God of War. I don't know though; the idea might anger a few too many people but I'm curious to see what games would make the list if you do make one.
  • Metroidhunter32 - February 16, 2010 11:36 p.m.

    Just a suggestion. Top seven puzzles that should have been easy. A few suggestions would be going left to get the morph ball in the original Metroid and just keep holding left for the first loop in sonic the hedgehog.
  • Cyberninja - January 27, 2010 12:28 a.m.

    i remember when all these were new
  • robotechandnarutosucks - January 19, 2010 11:32 p.m.

    Even though nobody reads these comments, I suggest Top 7 Games Ruined by 3D, Annoying Enemies, and Level Cliches.
  • DARK_SIDE - January 8, 2010 12:24 a.m.

    The "7s"...they haunt me
  • DARK_SIDE - January 8, 2010 12:21 a.m.

  • Onedown - October 19, 2009 5:04 a.m.

    You guys should make a Top 7 characters that need promotions. Like Commander Shepard from Mass Effect. Shepard saved the galaxy from total destruction and still isn't even a captain. There are probably a lot more characters like this too. I think it would be a good article.
  • hardcore_gamer1990 - December 6, 2008 11:07 p.m.

    If that be true, and no doubt it is, then why dont they ever appear on this list until about 2 months after they were published?
  • GamesRadarBrettElston - December 5, 2008 9:31 p.m.

    In case you're unaware, new Top 7s post each and every Monday, rain or shine, somewhere between noon and 3pm PST.
  • ryno - December 1, 2008 4:32 p.m.

    you guys should do a top 7 craziest enemies and include the metal gear gekko
  • ryno - November 25, 2008 2:53 p.m.

    you should do a top 7 scariest playable characters and include Alex Mercer from Prototype and Jackie Estacado from The Darkness
  • hardcore_gamer1990 - November 11, 2008 11:03 p.m.

    Hows about... "Top 7 useless weapons out of a specific context"? Example : Sniper rifles. Great once you've obtained them for long distance kills, but in the majority of Ratchet & Clank games you have to lug them about and avoid accidentally using them in battle royale situations
  • Kyon - October 22, 2008 7 p.m.

    How's about a Top 7 Top 7 lists. =P
  • MyGameName - October 7, 2008 10:45 p.m.

    Why does the Top 7 page have only 6 pages?
  • Brightside - September 30, 2008 7:18 a.m.

    C'mon guys, when are you gonna make some new Top 7's?
  • cricket0 - September 22, 2008 2:49 a.m.

    I think they should make a Top 7 for games that were popular just because it was made by a huge designer or the game is a sequel to a awesome game that suck.
  • blazerist - September 18, 2008 1:35 a.m.

    I think they should put some more top sevens because everyone has been waiting for a while and they havent added any
  • Killwarfighter - September 3, 2008 4:15 p.m.

    ooowa! a top 7 doughtnut!
  • oryandymackie - August 30, 2008 7:07 p.m.

    Bitesized warm tasty Top 7s!!!
